First of all, I want to share that the Roatan Marine-park's photo contest calender is available. Have a look at their FB page and see some of the amazing photos that were submitted. I am proud to say I think I bought the first one as they had just gotten them in. A great birhtday present to one of our divers.

When it has been wet the water pools and allows conditions to be perfect for the little horrors.

I got my mares nemo battery changed and pressure tested on site in the Mares shop in Roatan Westend for $40. It was done that afternoon. They have some great deals surprisingly great massive selection of equipment too. They are located opposite Roatan Rentals in the mini mall hard to miss them really, next to the blue channel restaurant.
